THIS BOOK WAS BETTER THEN THE SECOND BUT NOT AS GOOD AS THE FIRST. THE LOVE CONNECTION BETWEEN THEA AND ERIC SEEMED FAKE. I DIDN'T FEEL THE DEEP CONNECTION OR FEEL THE SPARKES BETWEEN THEM THAT SOULMATES SHOULD FEEL. THE ACTION WAS GOOD. YOU HAVE TO USE YOUR IMAGINATION TO THE FULLEST TO ENJOY THE STORY. IF YOU HAVE A WILD IMAGINATION LIKE I DO THEN YOU WILL ENJOY THIS BOOK.
Part of me had to laugh at the premise of this book. It seems that the series is made up of stories in which every book has paranormal characters who find humans for soulmates. This is a problem for all involved as the Night World culture forbids it's members to love humans. So, it borders on the "give me a break, this is getting old" plot hole because all the characters who've had it happen to them know each other. So, there's apparently an pandemic in the making.
Quite a bit of the first half of this is very 90210 in regards to teenagers being nasty when it comes to flirting and dealing with boys. Since it's a teen book, it's all very weak and generic, though, and isn't a full representation of how many teens really act.
Overall, the story was decent. It's a quick read and something different, but very much part of the pop-culture neutered vampires that have become very popular.
Enjoy these books by L.J. Smith.
The third book in the Night World Series.
I was so in love with The Night World Series during Middle school. But, seeing as I haven't read them SINCE that time and I need shelf space, away they go!
